Redrawing the Boundaries: Graduate/ Faculty Research Groups
Sustaining Graduate Innovation: A Conversation
Professor Mary Jacobus (CRASSH, University of Cambridge)
The current year’s theme will culminate in a major Mellon-funded conference at the end of June 2011: ‘The Future University’ – not ‘the Future of the University’ (over which the new ‘austerity’ looms alarmingly), but its evolving character and changing concerns, especially in the digital age. The conference will address post-disciplinary developments along with policy implications, as well as the catalyst provided by the creative and performing arts on one hand, and the social sciences on the other, when it comes to rethinking the very basis of ‘the Future University’ as a place where education and research (including practice-based research) remain vitally inter-connected within the broad field we know as the Humanities.

This conference is convened by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities as part of the Mellon-funded Consortium of Centres of Disciplinary Innovation (CDI) at CRASSH. CRASSH is grateful for the support of the Andrew W Mellon Foundation.
